I am a 27 year old mother of 2 and work full time! My shift is your typical 8-5pm. I am married and my husband also works full time in the evening. Usually 2-10pm. My problem is how my husband expects to come home to an immaculate house!!! I get up every morning get my 2 girls ready for school and pack lunches all the while he sleeps! Then I head off to work! My husband then gives them breakfast and takes them to school! The man now has 5 hours of childless time! He usally hits the gym and then he's on his own! Ugh! Of course the whole time I'm at work! As soon as I get off work it's pick up my girls, homework, dinner, dishes, showers, etc! No time to relax! so when my husband gets home from work on days where im just tired and not clean perfectly he'll see the house not up to his "par" and freak out! Of course my house is clean just not orginezed. He'll start out with what did you do all day and my favorite: "it's not hard to pick up, it takes 15 minutes" all I want to do is scream. He doesn't realize that I get home tired and have my two girls while he has his "childless time". I feel like I never meet this guys expectations! Is there a way of me explaining to him how much he expects from me and sometimes it's not doable!
